match the pairs (parts of speech)
These two games test whether you can place a list of random words into the following categories:
  • Adjective (e.g., red, happy, enormous). An adjective is a describing word. Adjectives modify nouns or pronouns.
  • Adverb (e.g., happily, loosely, often). An adverb modifies a verb. (Sometimes adverbs modify adjectives or other adverbs).
  • Conjunction (e.g., and, or, but). A conjunction joins words, phrases, or clauses.
  • Determiner (e.g., my, those, two, many). A determiner specifies a noun or a pronoun or states quantity.
  • Interjection (e.g., ouch, oops, eek). An interjection expresses emotion.
  • Noun (e.g., dog, town, apple). A noun names a person, place, or thing.
  • Preposition (e.g., in, near, on, with). A preposition shows the relationship between a noun (or pronoun) and other words in a sentence.
  • Pronoun (e.g., she, we, they). A pronoun replaces a noun (or a noun phrase).
  • Verb (work, be, write, exist). A verb identifies an action or state of being.
